Click here to Register for the June 4 meeting, Blind or Semi-Blind Contour.

On Thursday evenings, Art Omi hosts Open Figure Drawing for Adults, where a group of artists gathers in the Newmark Gallery to sketch, draw, and render from a live model. While current circumstances prevents us from gathering in person, we're thrilled to invite members of Art Omi's far-flung community to join us for the Virtual Drawing Group!

Every week, members of the Virtual Drawing group respond to a new drawing prompt. The group then gathers via Zoom to then share and discuss on Thursday evenings at 5 pm. Please note that registration to the weekly Zoom meet-up is capped, and pre-registration is required.

You can also participate by tagging your drawings on Instagram or Facebook! Use #artomi and #educationomi to share your work. All styles and media welcome — show us your creative best!

Building Character and Sculpting Stories

Every Wednesday
3:30 – 5:30 PM
The Studio Barns

How can we take control of the stories that we tell ourselves and others? This class will focus on creating character and storytelling through figurative sculpture. There will be an emphasis on developing a personal artistic style through character design and the utilization of motifs and symbols. Inspired by artists of the past and present, students will use a variety of tools, materials, and techniques as they consider figurative poses, the power of gesture, and understand how to develop their own visual language. Representational or abstract, there are no boundaries as to what you can create in this multimedia workshop! Students will be assigned to their very own studio space in our residency Barn. No prior experience necessary.
